Graham’s Mini Grumbles

No specific writing agenda today, so I’m just going to ramble until I hit my quota. Ready?

I saw Mad Max: Fury Road AGAIN on the weekend. Man, that movie is so much fun. I’m probably going to see it at least one more time in theatres. I’ll probably get it on Blu-Ray too, but I just can’t imagine it having the same impact on the small screen. When we left the theatre this last time, one of my buddies who I saw it with asked if I noticed anything that I missed the first time. What came to mind was actually kind of a small detail. There’s a part where a truck that’s covered in amps, drums, and a guitar crashes and flies to pieces. Amongst the debris are a bunch of other instruments – a tuba, a french horn, stuff like that. Just a nice, weird touch that makes me love the movie even more. Continue reading

Oh, What a Movie…

Once again, I’m a little late with this post. Normally, I post on Tuesday, but I saw Avengers 2 again yesterday and as much as I’d like to write more about that delightful film I’m sure you’d rather read something new. Luckily, I saw something today that’s much newer. Mad Max: Fury Road!

Let’s start with the negative: It felt to me a touch, a smidge, a wee bit long.

The positive: Everything else. Continue reading

Avengers 2: No Assembly Required

It’s a weird sensation knowing that the billion dollar earning Avengers 2 isn’t just the biggest movie of the summer. It’s also just the first of many superhero movies coming in the next few months. I still remember the days when a single Batman movie was worth getting excited about. Hell, I remember when a Blade movie was something to get excited about. Now, if anything, some people are getting kind of ho-hum about these huge blockbusters. I’m not in that group, and I don’t think I will be if Marvel manages to maintain this level of quality.

Lame Villains for Great Heroes

For every great superhero there are usually several great super villains. Usually, a hero is only able to truly shine when pitted against a villain that is worthy of them. The best villains also return time and again because writers and artists can’t get enough of them. This holds true of Spider-Man, Batman, and The X-Men. But, every once in a while, there’s an incredibly well regarded superhero who has an embarrassment of a rogues gallery. This week, I’m going to talk about the lame wads that some of the world’s best known heroes have to deal with on a regular basis. Continue reading
